Abstract The Census Bureau conducts the SIPP, which is a household-based survey designed as a continuous series of national panels. New panels are introduced every few years with each panel usually having durations of one to four years. Respondents are interviewed at 4-month intervals or ‘‘waves’’ over the life of the panel. The survey is molded around a central ‘‘core’’ of labor force and income questions that remain fixed throughout the life of the panel. The core is supplemented with questions designed to address specific needs, such as obtaining information on household members’ participation in government programs as well as prior labor force patterns of household members. These supplemental questions are included with the core and are referred to as ‘‘topical modules.’’ The SIPP represents a source of information for a wide variety of topics and allows information for separate topics to be integrated to form a single, unified database so that the interaction between tax, transfer, and other government and private policies can be examined. Government domestic-policy formulators depend heavily upon the SIPP information concerning the distribution of income received directly as money or indirectly as in-kind benefits and the effect of tax and transfer programs on this distribution. They also need improved and expanded data on the income and general economic and financial situation of the U.S. population. The SIPP has provided these kinds of data on a continuing basis since 1983 permitting levels of economic well-being and changes in these levels to be measured over time. The 2008 panel began in September 2008 and is currently scheduled for 4 years and will include 13 waves of interviewing. Approximately 65,300 households were selected for the 2008 E:\FR\FM\20JAN1.SGM 20JAN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The Census Bureau plans to conduct the 2011 New York City Housing 
and Vacancy Survey (NYCHVS) under contract for the City of New York. 
The primary purpose of the survey is to measure the rental vacancy 
rate, which is the primary factor in determining the continuation of 
rent control regulations. Other survey information is used by city and 
state agencies for planning purposes as well as the private sector for 
business decisions. New York is required by law to have such a survey 
conducted every three years.
    Information to be collected includes: Age, gender, race, Hispanic

similar questions is asked. Finally, all vacant units and approximately 
five percent of occupied units will be reinterviewed for quality 
assurance purposes.
    The Census Bureau compiles the data in tabular format based on 
specifications of the survey sponsor, as well as non-identifiable 
microdata. Both types of data are also made available to the general
